Gorgeous black bugs with gold and white polka dots, gold stripe on each side and lots of tiny white spots on the belly.

I should have just said this is a discussion about how can I control a bunch of  black bugs with polka dots that eat just about all kinds of leaves.  These pretty little bugs are the size of lady…Continue

Nip In The Bud

The story of the the Dollarhite family and USDA's tyrannical bunny raid is blatant and financially devastating---it is also a very effective strategy. Washington DC seems to have decided to take somebody on every year or less, and make an "example" so huge that there will be no small farmer or private grower left to be there for us when we search for healthy food---and we will be too fearful to consider growing it for ourselves.  Drew of the raw milk issue, said he was threatened with arrest,…See More

Apple Orchard

Have just experienced one of the less-than-600-orchards now left in MO. Mr. Rooster of ROOSTERS on highway 60, allowed us to pick up the fallen apples,and we got several bushels before we ran out of containers. When we went to pay for them, I asked a lot of questions. I also told him he was one of the few last remaining orchards in the state---mentioned the past 60,000 producing orchards---and now the present less-than-600- orchards that are left. Asked him---since it had become a burden to him…See More

Non GMO Feed Must Stay In The Picture

I wish we could put some sense into the heads of the law makers who are allowing GMO alfalfa to be planted without any limitations.  Unless organic farmers can somehow protect their fields and provide their livestock with non GMO feed, the incredible way GMOs can spread---the probability that the main feed for dairy and beef cattle, not to mention chickens, and other livestock---will be GMO corn and alfalfa (GMO sugar beets are on their way)---which…

Opportunities for Creative Sustainability

When I began looking on the Internet to order replacement parts for my old standby Vita-Mix stainless steel model 3600, I had no idea they had stopped making these parts because they'd assured me the appliance would last at least 20 years (it has), and I assumed they would correspondingly keep parts for it on hand.  The Vita-Mix 3600 blending machine is powerful, and it was made to last, but of course, it needs parts from time to time.  

I was preparing to write the company, and…

May I ask you to please be careful, in expressing opinions that could be taken as personal slams. It would be sad to turn off, maybe turn away someone who could become a key player in achieving the goals of Well Fed Neighbor. (They might have six or eight children)

I decided it was time to come check out and see what all the fuss was all about. So... if I was on here, then of course I had to send a friend request. :)

Rachel, try looking at the Merchants Group and chat with some in that group. Aubrey Taylor is a good source of information as is Galen. I have seen several listings but not sure where they are all currently published. Also, ask the vendors who show up Saturday morning at the Battlefield Mall lot. Keep me posted.
